George Jones Brings Out Joe Nichols at Ryman Show

George Jones invited Joe Nichols, Lee Ann Womack and Tanya Tucker to sing with him his concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Sunday night (March 18). Nichols, who attended the show solely as a fan, said, “George Jones is to country music what oxygen is to life. One simply cannot exist without the other, and I am honored beyond words that I have been given the gift of performing with this man.” Nichols’ brief set included “Workin’ Man’s Blues” and a duet of “Yesterday’s Wine.” For the finale, they sang, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.” Nichols is currently working on his fourth CD for Universal South.
